2014 Honda VFR1200XD "Crosstourer" - SW-MOTECH Crash Bars

Bought and fitted some SW-MOTECH Crash Bars in 2021 for the Crosstourer.
I hope they will never take a hit offcourse but they sure make the bike look more bad ass. XD

Even a clumsy guy like me I was able to fit these on the bike. I took my time for it though. Do not try to do this in a rush.

Although sometimes mentioned it was not neccesary to support the engine while installing these bars.

This is what SW-MOTECH has to say about this product:
